Praise for 
Sleeping Dragons

SLEEPING DRAGONS is Reyn Kinzey’s second book. Like the first one, it holds you enthralled from start to finish. As a matter of fact, I immediately went back and read it all the way through again.

Reyn has a unique style, chooses interesting subjects, and interprets life with a poet’s voice all his own. The poems beautifully share his love of kayaking and his respect for the natural world; his search for ancestry and self in his travels to Ireland; touching family stories of life and death intermingled with spiritual tales of the saints – each poem a commentary, some moving, some biting, of life, today and yesterday.

The stories reflect his wry humor and empathy as well as sharp observances of a man who seems to believe in wringing every ounce of life from each day and isn’t afraid to reflect back to the reader what he has seen and experienced – the beauty, the misery, and always, the truth.

SLEEPING DRAGONS is an intriguing book you will enjoy and want to share with your friends.

Chasing the Dragon, by Reyn Kinzey is an exciting book -- filled with a twenty-five-year span of captivating voices and images. His poems range from travel stories about his ancestral Ireland to personal searches for self in his journey from restless young man to contented retiree. My personal favorites are his kayaking tales about adventures with osprey, eagles and dolphin. Kinzey is an amazing poet with a unique style and talent for story-telling. I promise, you won’t be able to put Chasing the Dragon down. His truth-telling combined with wry humor makes it a compelling read.
